Installed smoothly, running nicely so far. Graphics performance isn't
brilliant but it's only an ancient Matrox card & I'm not sure it has
any drivers or acceleration.

Currently doing an update, then I'll install the restricted extras & a
few things & give it a bit of a hammering.

System spec:

Dual Athlon MP @ 1666MHz
LSI Logic 64-bit PCI UltraSCSI 3 adaptor with 9GB Quantum boot disk,
Quantum 17GB /home disk and IBM 4GB for dedicated swap.
Matrox G550 AGP dual-head graphics card.
3Com 3c595 100Mb Ethernet card.
